Book Description

Guides College Students in Understanding the Interactions between Computing/Networking Technologies and Security Issues

Taking an interactive; “learn-by-doing” approach to teaching; Introduction to Computer and Network Security: Navigating Shades of Gray gives you a clear course to teach the technical issues related to security. Unlike most computer security books; which concentrate on software design and implementation; cryptographic tools; or networking issues; this textbook also explores how the interactions between software; hardware; and users affect system security.

The ebook presents basic principles and concepts; along with examples of current threats to illustrate how the principles can either enable or neutralize exploits. Students see the importance of these concepts in existing and future technologies. In a challenging yet enjoyable way; they learn about a variety of technical topics; including current security exploits; technical factors that enable attacks; and economic and social factors that determine the security of future systems.

Extensively classroom-tested; the material is structured around a set of challenging projects. Through staging exploits and choosing countermeasures to neutralize the attacks in the projects; students learn:

  • How to reverse-engineer processes
  • How computer systems and networks operate
  • How to use systems in ways that were never foreseen (or supported) by the original developers

Combining hands-on work with technical overviews; this text helps you integrate security analysis into your technical computing curriculum. It will educate your students on security issues; such as side-channel attacks; and deepen their understanding of how computers and networks work.

NOTE: This ebook only contains the ebook Introduction to Computer and Network Security: Navigating Shades of Gray in PDF. No access codes included.
